House Republicans Move to Scrap January 6th Subpoenas Against Trump Allies

More than two dozen House Republicans reportedly introduced a resolution this week aimed at rescinding Committee subpoenas issued on January 6 against many former President Donald Trump’s aides.

The bill also aims to retract suggestions that these persons be held in contempt of Congress and requires the House Speaker to notify the Department of Justice (DOJ) of their activities.

Stephen Bannon, Peter Navarro, Dan Scavino, and Mark Meadows are four former White House officials who refused to cooperate with subpoenas.

The DOJ declined to prosecute Scavino and Meadows, but opened charges and obtained convictions for the others.

Former White House trade adviser Navarro is currently serving a four-month prison sentence.

Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist who left the White House in 2017, is expected to report to prison on July 1.

Rep. Eric Burlison (R-MO) unveiled the resolution on Tuesday, adding that it had 24 cosponsors, including Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and Chip Roy (R-TX).

Democrats controlled the House when the now-defunct January 6 Committee conducted its probe.

Two Republicans who are now former representatives. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) served on the panel.

It’s unclear whether the resolution will be considered by the GOP-led House, but its co-sponsors want to see a vote.
